Summer treats

Hello lovely people,

I am so very excited today as I am off on my holibobs tomorrow!  We are heading to Yorkshire for a week of walking and cream teas :-)

So, if I am a little MIA over the next week you will know why!

But before I go, it's time for a new challenge at In The Pink and our theme this time is...

SUMMER!

We are delighted to be sponsored for this challenge by The Ribbon Girl with a prize of a £10 voucher
I feel like I've done quite a few fancy cards recently so thought I'd go CAS for this one.
I did my usual trick of colouring the image before stamping the sentiment and then hoping I didn't muck up the stamping of the sentiment!
I have this sentiment as part of a freebie set with a magazine but it's available from Clearly Besotted and let me tell you, their stamps are lovely and stamp so beautifully :-)



It seems like ages since I coloured up a gorgeous Wryn image and this one was perfect because you can't have summer without ice cream, right?!


Card recipe;
DP: Yours truly - Pebbles
Sentiment: from Sweet rose set - Clearly Besotted
Button: from stash

Copic colours;
Skin: E000/00/21/11/04 & R20
Hair: E21/25/29
Ice cream / skirt / shoes: R83/85/RV17
Flowers / top: B0000/01/04
Ice cream cone: E50/53/55/57
Ground: T0/1/2/3/4

If you haven't already done so then do pop over to In The Pink and check out the gorgeous creations from the rest of the Pink Ladies.

Thanks for visiting and I really appreciate any comments that you leave,


Challenges I am entering;

Oh I so nearly used this for my GDT slot hun, and so glad I didn't now as she would have looked awful next to your little stunner! Beautiful CAS card. Hugs xx

Well you know how much I love Wryn....... and this little lady is perfect for our theme with her yummy ice-cream!! LOVING your colouring of course... and that CAS layout is just right for her with that fab sentiment too.. I know that knee trembling feeling when you hope that it stamps OK!!

We do seem to have such similar thoughts when it comes to our themes.. good job we didn't choose the same Wryn!

Can't wait to see you in Yorkshire next week...... have a lovely time before we meet up... you really WILL love Yorkshire!

Big hugs

Wow this is beautiful, fab colouring and great sentiment. I hate stamping the sentiment after colouring, nervewracking. Enjoy your hols, we are off to Yorkshire next month but I never put it on my blog or FB just in case. Have fun xx

Sue said...

Kat, aww this is a truly beautiful card... Your colouring of that super cute Wryn is absolutely perfect (I know what you mean about stamping the sentiment though!, I always forget and end up doing it afterwards...with my eyes shut!!! (I did buy a 'stamp a majig' recently off Amazon which has really helped with those sticky moments)!!!

Just a perfectly beautiful CAS card...

Hope you have a super duper hols Kat and the weather is kind to you...xxx

Aww Kat, this card is utterly stunning! I love the pink gingham, so perfect for this card. Your colouring is fantastic and the sentiment is fab. Had to laugh about that being stamped last. I've done this more than once myself... and mucked it up! LOL! But yours is perfect. Love this card to bits. Happy holibobs hun. Hope you have an awesome time walking the moors. Big hugs, Wends xxx
